The Lyrics

This is a parody of John Denver’s song called “Annie’s Song.” In Denver’s song, he compared the sensation of being with his wife to the sensation of being in nature. (“You fill up my senses / Like a night in a forest / Like the mountains in springtime…”) In contrast, my parody compares modern life, with its electronic media, addictive pills, and hypnotic highways, with being under anesthesia, or being numb.
You numb all my senses
Like a modern e-tune
Like a late-night lampoon
Like a cheap game show win
Like an opioid pall
Like a stare at the wall
You numb all my senses
Come numb me again

Come let me hear you
Let me call you a classic
Let me dance with your groove
Let me play you again
Let me share you on Facebook
Let my mind keep your rhythm
Come let me hear you
Come numb me again

You numb all my senses
Like an afternoon soap
Like an addiction to dope
Like a talk show host’s spin
Like a long highway drive
Like what keeps me alive
You numb all my senses
Come numb me again

Come let me watch you
Let me lose my mind with you
Let me gawk at your folly
Let me try not to laugh
Let me watch all your late shows
Let me believe all your lies
Come let me watch you
Come numb me again
